I have been seeing her for my eye care for over 20 years. She's super smart, kind, and honest, with an easygoing bedside manner. She assumes a level of intelligence that I appreciate, in an era of too many doctors dumbing down the information (a la Dr. Oz) unnecessarily . I wouldn't be seeing her for so long if she wasn't an excellent eye doctor.
One Saturday morning with my weekend travel bag packed, I needed treatment for my painful eye infection. Anxious I wouldn't be able to get an appt. with ANY opthalmologist on a Saturday, and that I would need to travel to Manhattan IF I could get an appt., I found Dr. Guthrie's office open early in Sunnyside. A wonderful doctor, Dr Guthrie treated me promptly and I felt immediate relief. She is a wonderful physician. Additionally her warm and caring personality is "over-the-top". I would send anyone I know and love to her
